EASTHAM—The Board of Trustees of the Eastham Public Library is proud to recognize Norma Marcellino and Sharon Krause for their many years of dedication and service to the library and its visitors. The two long-time trustees will be honored at a private ceremony.

“The Town of Eastham was extremely fortunate to have had such dedicated servants on its library board,” said Mary Shaw, chair of the board of trustees.

Norma Marcellino, an Eastham Library card holder since 1979, served 9 years as a library trustee—6 years as secretary and 2 years as chair. Her volunteerism at the library began in the original 1897 Village Improvement Society (VIS) library where she dusted shelves. Then, she joined the Friends of the Eastham Library and served as a liaison to the board of trustees until becoming a trustee in 2010. From the start, she contributed to the 5-year effort to build the new library building.

“I’m proud of what we all did to get the new library built,” said Norma.

Sharon Krause served 8 years as a library trustee—4 years as secretary and 4 years as a member. Sharon’s contributions to the library began in the Children’s Room and in the meeting rooms fifteen years ago. She’s a member of the Friends of the Eastham Library, during which time she served 4 years as secretary, on the board of directors for the Eastham Library Building Fund (ELBFI), and assists with Wampanoag research for the upcoming Eastham 400 Commemoration. You can still find her twice a week downstairs in the new Children’s Room.

“I’m not going anywhere,” said Sharon.
